Let's blame it on Dan.

Can you post a link to another one or two that are broken?

I have midterm exams this week, but hope to get back to things after that. I've just put this on my todo!

Just started graduate classes last semester... you know, "for fun."

It was fun last semester, but this semester I decided to take two classes, which was just silly considering the rest of my schedule. I don't know what I was thinking. I won't make that mistake again!

Um.. yea! What were you thinking? Plus the fact that they tack on a paper in just about every graduate class, it adds to the beating.

Just take it one class at a time, keep plugging. Eventually, you'll get done.

Oh.. BTW.. make sure you have a signed program of classes signed and approved. There's nothing worse than when you think you're almost done, and they try to hit you up for something.

FYI, I just fixed this issue -- but there's a twist!

It turns out that the broken threads weren't actually polls at all -- they were just showing up that way. They were actually threads that had been Moved from that category (in this case, Windows NT/2000/XP) to another forum. The links that were supposed to point to the thread's new location got messed up by my "Thread Timeout" hack. Oops.

If you follow the link Karen posted to the archive, you'll notice that threads that previously showed up as polls are now Moved, and the links work:
http://forums.techguy.org/33-archive...ws-nt-2000-xp/

Unfortunately, the links posted in this thread are the incorrect ones, so they will continue to NOT work. The correct links now show up in the forum, though.

I hope that all makes sense.
